    Simpson was never good on taxes or guns

    Here is from a website that refers to Simpson as the GOP's Grouchy old RINO

    actually the worst RINOS are the lady RINOS from Maine and ex senator and now OHIO AG Mike DeWhine

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

    and??? if he was good on the issues that mattered to me I would have more use for him.

    your issues tend to be taxing the rich more and giving the unions more power. I suspect if there was a dem candidate who was anti union and pro tax payer but reliably dem on abortion, gay rights, environmental stuff, women's issues, you would be less enamored with him or her than if the candidate was pro life, anti gay marriage but a solid Union guy and tax and spend liberal-like say Dinosaur John Dingell, who was well liked by the NRA and not exactly someone the gay lobby flocked to

    its very sad that Republicans call anyone who dares to want to work with Democrats, a RINO.

    as if working with Democrats to find some compromise, is a bad thing.

    if Republicans think compromise is evil, our nation is finished.

    Income disparity is nearly at an all time high, and the rich pay too much right now? Is a 4.6% tax raise on INCOME really too much? Those poor, poor, rich people-misnomer isnt it?
    You are right on the point that the government should go on a diet-starting with the largest military budget in the world...

    Was Obamacare and the trillion dollar stimulus a compromise with Republicans? No, and please notice Obama does not talk about his signature accomplishment "Obamacare" nor how his trillion dollar stimulus has did anything for the economy.

    Negotiating with Democrats is like negotiating with North Koreans. Good faith is an alien concept.

    And your post is a shined up turd.

    Defense spending is around 15%, entitlements are over 65%. Which one is it more important we get under control?

    Im for means testing and have stated so several times.

    Do you ever get tired of being so wrong?
